Paradise-Sonoma Conservation District

The Paradise-Sonoma Conservation District covers the eastern part of Humboldt County. There are about 2,313,640 acres in the district consisting of about 582,640 acres of private land and 1,731,000 acres of public land administered by the U.S. Forest Service (270,000 acres) and Bureau of Land Management. About 70 percent of the private lands are used to produce irrigated crops such as barley, oats, wheat, alfalfa, grass hay, and improved pasture (247,493 acres). The remaining private land is used for livestock grazing (railroad leases). The average size of the farms and ranches in the district is 2,500 acres. Public lands are used primarily for livestock grazing and recreation. Industrial use of lands in the district consists of several medium sized hard rock mining ventures.

The district's objectives are to provide quality service to district cooperators interested in developing conservation programs for their farms and ranches. Cooperating units of government, primarily the Natural Resources Conservation Services (NRCS), will provide most of these services.
